A cell phone video that shows an Amazon driver apparently giving a friend a lift home in his delivery truck has gone viral on social media.
The video shows a woman wearing a black cocktail dress exiting the back of an Amazon truck while the driver holds the door for her.
The video is straight forward, but speculation has run rampant on social media that the driver was not delivering a package to the woman.
According to one Twitter user, the Amazon driver was simply giving an acquaintance a ride home.
The Twitter user said the driver was being unfairly judged by Twitter users who were jumping to conclusions.
Others shared their concerns for the driver's job in these challenging times. Some said he might get fired for being a Good Samaritan.
The video was originally posted to TikTok by user @patrickhook01 who gave no context to what was happening in the video.

Many on Twitter.com questioned why Angelina's hair stylist chopped her extensions so badly.
"How do you let Angelina Jolie walk a red carpet with her hair extensions looking like this, somebody getting fired," one user tweeted.
Another Twitter user wrote: "Well, maybe she had one of her kids do the extensions, which is kinda sweet."

The children are reportedly from Michael's previous relationships.

The Subway worker who was fired from a Providence, Rhode Island store for tampering with food now works at a Taco Bell restaurant.
The man who calls himself "Jumanne Struggled" on social media uploaded a video that shows him preparing tacos at a Rhode Island Taco Bell.
The man went viral on Friday after his videos were posted on Reddit.com's R/awfuleverything sub.
In a video uploaded to YouTube on Oct. 14, the ex-Subway worker filmed himself walking on salad trays that he placed on the floor. He then placed the trays back on the counter to make sandwiches for customers.
In another video, he lines a toilet bowl rim with deli meats, then tosses salad, deli meats and bread on the floor.
In an interview with the Daily Mail, he admitted he trashed the food for TikTok and YouTube ad revenue:
"Unfortunately, I'm a content creator, so I create controversial videos to be able to potentially monetize my audience on YouTube and other social media platforms."
He said he was concerned that he might be arrested but he noted that the rewards (Internet fame and money) outweighed the risks.
"I just reached a point where I decided I would be willing to take a higher risk for a higher reward. There's a lot of consequences within creating controversy but I accept whatever happens."
In a statement to Newsweek on Friday, a Subway spokesperson confirmed the man was immediately fired after the videos surfaced online.
The spokesperson said:
"Subway and our network of franchisees take health and food safety extremely seriously and don't condone any behavior that violates our strict policies in these areas.
"While Subway restaurants are individually owned and operated, we have confirmed with the franchisee of this location that the employee was immediately terminated after he learned of the employee's actions."
No charges have been filed.
A Waffle House worker who held an infant baby in her arms while apparently serving customers has been suspended from her job.
The video footage was uploaded to TikTok by user @Kizzle360 who captioned the video "Ain't know why she got her baby in here [sic]."
Someone can be heard in the background saying, "Ain't no f***ing way."
Viewers were conflicted. Many said they would never bring a baby to work even under the most dire circumstances.
According to TMZ, the Waffle House worker, Tiffany Clark, has a "tragic backstory."
Tiffany, who goes by @tiffanyclark842 on TikTok, claims she had no choice but to take her 4-month-old niece Octavia to work with her.
Tiffany was working the overnight shift at a South Carolina when she got an urgent call from her mother about an emergency family situation.
Tiffany said Octavia is the daughter of her brother who recently died.
The baby's grandmother told Tiffany to get the baby because the child's mother had a mental breakdown and was going to be hospitalized.
Tiffany said the only other option was for the baby to end up in the custody of child services. She told TMZ the video is not nearly as bad as it looks.
Despite appearances, Tiffany claims she was never cooking food with baby Octavia in her arms.
She insists she was simply marking plates for servers, and she says she was only behind the counter with the child for the brief moment that was caught on video.
After the video went viral, Tiffany explained the situation to her boss. She was suspended from her job for a week, but she won't be fired.
Tiffany says she intends become her niece's legal guardian while the baby's mother seeks help for her mental disorder.
Remember when CNN anchor Anderson Cooper made a fool of himself by standing in "flood waters" up to his waist during Hurricane Ike in 2008? A bystander snapped photos of Cooper's crew standing in a couple of inches of water - and a viral meme was born.
On Sunday, Jim Cantore, a meteorologist for The Weather Channel, went viral while covering Hurricane Ida as it slammed into Louisiana with 150 mph winds.
Cantore leaned into "heavy winds" and appeared to stumble and lose his balance several times during his live remote.
As he dramatically braced himself against the hurricane force winds, a guy cartwheeled behind him.
Twitter users rated the cartwheel a gold medal performance.
One Twitter user wrote:
"Jim and the weather channel has turned storms to sensationalism for their network in the last 10 years.."
Another user tweeted: "this is why people don't trust the weathermen."
And a third person wrote: "Jim is the dr. Fauci of weather."
In more serious news, Hurricane Ida left a path of destruction along the Gulf Coast. More than 1 million residents are out of power in New Orleans after Hurricane Ida made landfall Sunday night.
Ida knocked out power in Louisiana and Mississippi and, according to estimates, the power could be out for 6 weeks or more.
High winds and flooding destroyed multiple buildings. A 60-year-old man was reportedly killed when a building collapsed on him.
Hurricane Ida was quickly downgraded to a tropical storm over southwestern Mississippi by Monday morning.
About 95% of oil and gas production in the Gulf Coast was shut down and gas prices are expected to rise in the area.
If you want to donate to recovery efforts, New Orleans officials recommend donating to United Way of Southeast Louisiana and The Greater New Orleans Foundation.
The American Red Cross said they have opened dozens of shelters across the state.

Nicki Minaj praised a New York security guard who allowed a fan to perform her track "Whole Lotta Money" inside a Zara store.
TikTok user Zha Chanel, a male-to-female trans, performed a karaoke rendition of the track inside the retail outlet. Normally, a security guard would eject a shopper who use expletives and other racy language.
Mall security Michael initially tried to shut down the filming, but he walked away when Chanel refused to stop rapping.
Michael later said he was unsure if he would lose his job if he forced Chanel to stop. His good deed caught the attention of Nicki, who shared the video on her social media.
"it's the security guard sayin 'y'all can't do that in here' while walking AWAY from the festivities," wrote the rapper, who later added: "Someone tell the security guard in that video I posted that I'm lookin for him. I wanna send him a gift for being such a sweetheart to one of my babies. [sic]"
After Nicki tracked Michael down, he told TMZ: "She said, 'If I like one of your photos, I'll get like 1000-plus likes, my phone is still buzzing'."
Nicki subsequently 'liked' most of his posts, which boosted his follower count to more than 9,000. She said she would also give him a gift for being nice to her fans.
A Burger King signage went viral after a group of disgruntled Burger King employees walked off the job at the same time at a Lincoln, Nebraska location.
The former employees walked off the job and left a message on the Burger King sign announcing: "WE ALL QUIT. SORRY FOR THE INCONVENIENCE."
According to the former employees, they were upset over poor work conditions, low pay and long hours. They chose to collect unemployment which pays more than the minimum wage in Nebraska.
"They have gone through so many district managers since I've been GM," said former general manager Rachel Flores who was among the disgruntled workers that resigned. "No one has come to the store to help me out. They're so in and out."
Flores told reporters the sign was something they all came up with to inform customers that the restaurant was closed and "just kind of a laugh to upper management."
Burger King corporate office issued a statement to CNN:
"The work experience described at this location is not in Lin with our brand values. Our franchisee is looking into this situation to ensure this doesn't happen in the future."
Flores said she was surprised the sign went viral on social media.
"I didn't think anybody was going to notice it, because we did just one sign, and then it went pretty crazy on Facebook," she said. "I got a call from my upper management and they told me I needed to take it down."
